Dandelion Happiness

Hi and welcome!  It's Saturday here and I've just survived my first three days at work after a 5 month break.  After getting laundry out of the way this morning, I couldn't wait to get into my craft room and do some stamping - my brain was too sore to attempt stamping after work!

I decided to make a very simple card first up.  This card uses the inspiration from Stampin' Royalty and the sketch from Fusion.  I have taken a few liberties with the sketch but I think you can still see the components in my card.

I used the dandelion heads to represent the two circles in the sketch and the sentiment represents the horizontal panel.  My card was layered onto a Pool Party base.  I decided not to put any embellishments on it, thinking it was a nice graphic card that didn't need dressing up any.

Thanks for visiting.

Products used:

Stamps:  Dandelion Dreams (Clearly Besotted)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Goldenlocks, Smoke (SSS)
Cardstock:  White, Pool Party

I loved the inspiration picture at SR from the first moment I saw it! A beautiful interpretation of both challenges Karren.
Enjoy the weekend... I can hardly imagine how it must feel to be back at work after such a nice long break!
Hugs to you!

Now that is a very creative take on the sketch! I love how the white space really makes the dandelions and big sentiment stand out.

Oh, and welcome back to the working world!!
